Thanks for writing in.
In addition to your pain medication, have you tried applying volini
gel on the back ? 15 minutes later, apply hot fomentation on the affected area.
I would advise you to visit your doctor and get an MRI of the back/ spine done to rule out other causes of backache
Any history of anxiety
I would recommend you to sign up for relaxation classes/ breathing exercises. In addition , once you recover , it would be bettter to do back strengthening exercises.
Hope this helps
